Shoprite Checkers Urgent Concerns: Unfulfilled Promises and Operational Issues at Shoprite Tzaneen

Dear Shoprite Tzaneen Management,

I trust this message reaches you with the urgency it deserves.

My concern pertains to the R5.00 budget bread that your store advertises to customers. Despite the assurance that this bread is baked daily, customers consistently find themselves unable to access it. Repeatedly, we are informed that the bread is sold out, allegedly due to Shoprite staff, both managers and junior staff, reserving and locking it away for their own convenience, only to pay at the end of their shifts. This practice is grossly unfair to us, your clients. We expect transparency and the fulfillment of promises made to customers.

Furthermore, the operational aspect of the store is troubling. Despite having more than 20 till machines, only 5 are operational after 4 PM each day. While we understand the need to manage costs, neglecting customer satisfaction in the process is unacceptable. After a long day of work, we do not want to endure unnecessary hour-long queues.

I urge you to address these issues promptly, ensuring that the promises made to customers are honored, and operational efficiency is improved for the benefit of all patrons. Your attention to these matters is crucial in maintaining the trust and satisfaction of your clientele.

Sincerely,

Junait

Recommendation: I strongly suggest addressing this matter with the management promptly. False advertising is detrimental to the store's reputation and erodes customer trust. It is essential to remind the staff and managers that customer satisfaction should always be a top priority, as we, the customers, are the foundation of their business. If the store cannot consistently deliver on the promise of the budget bread, I recommend reconsidering the promotion altogether. It is better to have transparent communication about product availability rather than creating false expectations.

Shoprite Checkers Extremely Poor Customer Experience

Extremely Poor Customer Experience

What an extremely poor service I have received from Mahlatse Malatji from Shoprite Liquor Modjadji Plaza (GA-Kgapane). I went to the shop to get some refreshments around 18:25 today the 8th of Jan 2024,I got to the shop and took whatever I wanted to drink but when I got to the till Mahlatse asked for an extra savings card before she can even ring my item, I then told her that I left it in the car but it's fine she can ring without it but she then told me that we as the Shoprite customers are now forced to have the card or else we are not allowed to shop,. I then asked her that are you saying if I don't have the card or if I don't want to register for the card meaning I am not allowed to buy at Shoprite, she then said yes! She denied to let me buy. I told her that I will report her but she did not hesitate to tell me that I can go wherever I wanna go for all she cares because if she let me buy without the card she is going to sign a warning. I had to go to the car to fetch the card, I then went to her to pay, she then told me to pay at the other till. I did so.So now I'm asking myself why are we forced to have the card? Is it there anything hidden info behind the cards...? She was not even wearing her name tag, I asked her why is she not wearing the name tag, she then told me that she lost it long time ago. She then said 'My Name is Mahlatse Malatji'

Shoprite Checkers Checkers springs mall

While at store in springs Mall on the 07/04/2024 at the bakery, the staff that are working with the food does not have any head caps or disposable gloves.

This is highly un-acceptable, when working with food, there should be gear.

We have complained to the manager on duty, and she did not take the matter seriously (Cindy).

When I called thabang on the 08/04/2024 he had said that it is not necessary to have a head cap and disposable gloves.

This is highly disgusting, for clients to see the staff working I this manner,

The cashiers are also ignorant and chat to the people packing, they do not listen when you ask them foe something, I believe that the cashiers should focus on the clients.

When the store is busy, there are few cashiers.

Please I request that there should be better management.
thanks

Desired outcome: i would appreciate the feedback and improvement at the store

However, with a resolved complaints rating of 5% we recommend that you stay careful.

Shoprite Checkers Not enough cashiers

I work in JHB CBD and will normally shop by the mini Shoprite in town, lately

the store never has cashiers and when I request to speak to the manager they are on the tills as cashiers, this is un called for and its making it difficult to go shop there because of the long queues and no-one to service us.

I'm not sure who needs to hear this or who will attend to it but this is terrible customer service and a huge inconvenience and really tiring please hire more cashiers or make sure there are sufficient cashiers to make our shopping experience easier.

I am an extremely disappointed client.

Desired outcome: sufficient staff at all times.

Shoprite Checkers More than poor service

I am a very irritate customer of Shoprite Yeoville Johannesburg. Every year their service is more than poor. There are 14 tills but only 4 tills are working, why do you bother having 14 tills. today I stood on the queue for more than 2 hours. That is pathetic, there are lots of unemployed youth that can be given jobs by Shoprite since they have many tills, come on its time you change and treat us like people that were, treat us with respect, by providing excellent speedy customers service, or is it because we are black. The manger was there doing nothing, the quoue was starting at the back. It did not only happen today, it happens all the time. Please do something. The other thing, there is a leakage when customers stand to pay, the water is dripping so hard, please fix it, what will you do if a child or anybody slip and hurt themselves. You are not a spaza shop, you are a big company, I will send these complains until something changes at Shoprite. Thank you.

Good day, I bought 2 sachets of Darling 1 litre milk yesterday morning, 24th October 2023, just after the shop opened. Needless to say, I never checked the expiry dates as I expect fresh produce to be packed in a big store like Checkers, especially after a weekend. I needed the milk to make porridge for my elderly mom which is why I purposely went 1st...

Shoprite Checkers Poor customer service

I went to Shoprite on the 24th of Oct to purchase a lotto ticket at about 17:16 and I stood in the queue for approximately 20min and it was not busy and there was no cashier to assist at the lotto booth. I then asked to see the manager in charge and went to her to complain that it was unfair to me as an elderly person to wait for so long with out assistance whereas the store was not busy. She then rudely told me to wait again as the cashier was coming , I asked her for how long I should wait again, she kept on eating an avocado and seem annoyed and not to care about my complaint. She didn't have a name tag on and refused to give me her name. I then asked the security personnel to give me her name bit they seemed reluctant as she was near by. I was assisted 20minutes later by a cashier who also didn't have a name tag.

Desired outcome: I would like an apology and staff should be accountable for their actions.

Shoprite Checkers Special on sunday 15th october 2023 at brackenfell checkers hyper

This is not the first time I travel all the way from a small town an hour an a half away for special advertised and when I want to buy at your checkers in brackenfell it is out of stock before special even begin. Besides time and money for a manager to say sorry we were busy we are out of stock is unacceptable. You must be prepared for large crowds or at least compensate for the fact its outbof stock not a customers problem. Where is the service. They were fast and quivk to get rid of us and brush it away as just sorry thats how it is. I wanted specifically the cheese of 99 rand and chicken braai packs on special

Desired outcome: To provide me the product at the price advertised by either a coupon or somethimg
